BASIC LINE EDITING means regular editing that might have been done once by you or someone else and you need to finalize it for publishing.

COPY EDITING applies to commercial marketing and advertising materials: web content, emails, newsletters, resumes, brochures, flyers, etc…

HEAVY EDITING means a raw manuscript or draft, which you have just written and no one else has read it or proofed it or it has been edited only lightly, requiring a more time consuming edit.

DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING means taking a look at things like story development and structure, plot and logistics in addition to the grammatical assesment of a manuscript. This type of editing can be quite detailed and time comsuming, but well worth it, especially in the early stages of your book.

As the author, you describe the condition of the manuscript. The Editor will accept your description of the type of editing you will need, but the EDITOR WILL HAVE THE FINAL SAY after a quick perusal of the manuscript.

Rates are based on the pages submitted for editing, not final page count. The rates apply for every page of the manuscript whether a short passage or a full page of text.

Manuscript should be double spaced to guarantee you the rates listed. Single spaced pages take much more time to read/edit and with slower reading there is more time and energy involved in this type of editing. Single spaced manuscripts will be charged an additional fee $1.00 per page.

Rush jobs will be considered for an additional fee.
